Nuclear Radiation Monitoring
The continuing establishment of nuclear power stations around the world pose unique environmental challenges for their operators. Ecotech provides air samplers to nuclear power plants for sampling of radionuclides.
A nuclear power plant's radionuclide monitoring network enables continuous sampling of airborne particles onto sample filters contained within High Volume Air Samplers. These filters are then analysed in a laboratory in order to screen for any radiation releases. The challenge has always been to obtain a sufficiently large volume through the filter in order to exceed the laboratory methods minimum detection limits.
Ecotech's MegaVol Sampler, samples at a flow rate of between 120-150 m3/hr providing a high flow rate in order to collect a sufficient sample mass for laboratory analysis.
The MegaVol will maintain volumetric flow rate at a preset volume until the filter is either changed or overloaded. The MegaVol can be equipped with a 3G modem in order to remotely monitor flow rate and other diagnostic parameters such as temperature, pressure and wind speed and direction.
